A note from Marshall in Charge of Heavy Weapons, Duke Tindal:
Fighters take note: You will be stickered with a white or a red rose after you’ve been inspected. It’s not dissimilar for the process at Pennsic. When you come to the Rapier Tent bring your authorization card and ALL of the weapons you plan to use FOR THE ENTIRE EVENT. If something in your armor or weaponry changes during the event it must be inspected/re-inspected by a marshal before use. If you don’t have a sticker you will not be allowed to compete in the tourney.
Please familiarize yourself with the Policies of the Earl Marshall of the East Kingdom. (Offsite PDF link)
